Soul soothing simple things

The lovely and ever soulful Christina wants us to talk about simple things that soothe our souls without pictures (still on borrowed time/machine) here is the list that I have been keeping since I heard about today...and it is lots more than 5!
1. silly signs that make me smile (Texas Watermelon -Blessed by Jesus, Dust Free Path, Butterfly crossing)
2. a yellow dragonfly that landed on the sidewalk at a bus stop amongst dried up orange peels
3. extra cherries in my cherry limeade
4. a butterfly landing on my shoulder and staying there as I walked around the butterfly pavilion
5. a baby's laughter on a swing
6. the sound of rain!!! in the desert!!!
7. a new place to watch stencil videos and a new stencil master to watch create magic
8. laughing with the friend who has known me the longest about how ridiculously connected we are
9. hearing from someone else what a good adult my son is
10. opportunities and options for the summer
11. celebrating the birthday of my far away twin nieces in my heart and in words, mine and theirs, they are good adults too!
12. whimsy in gardens that are filled with life (you'll love this picture!)
13. a really, really good book from an author that I love and hate, Elizabeth Berg. She sucks me in every time and then some of her endings just break my heart and I think I will never read her again and then A Year of Simple Pleasures -aahh... makes me want to read it again and again and I just finished it
14. knowing that bright and shiny things await
15. the Factory of 5th is reopening! it's a studio/gallery that has been closed to public gatherings for a while and now will have a show in July! yippee-ki-yea, back in the saddle again
16. catching the moon through the clouds...I know! clouds in the desert... that actually produced moisture...who'd a thunk it!
17. my asparagus fern bloomed this amazing white feathery flower, I had forgotten they did that
18. hearing/seeing what other people find wonderful today
19. a library that has computers and Internet
20. the connections made through time and space and knowing that my tribe really is out there, gathering up simple things to share!

Pictures will follow when I can (especially signs!! You gotta see the blessed watermelons)

Love Thursday

By way of Secret Notebooks, Wild Pages, by way of Chookooloonks (new to me) I give you my Love Thursday. Some times you just have to gather your heart around...

I'm not a big "heart" person (well I would like to think that I do have a big heart) but I do seem to see them a lot lately and I do have a purple heart tattoo from many years ago so maybe they are making their way back into my line of sight...

I am better now

A day at the zoo with a borrowed grandchild and a saucy peacock goes a long way...
